STAND. COM. REP. NO. 1517
RE: S.B. No. 763
Honorable Scott K. Saiki
Speaker, House of Representatives
Thirty-Second State Legislature
Regular Session of 2023
State of Hawaii
Your Committee on Judiciary & Hawaiian Affairs, to which was referred S.B. No. 763, S.D. 2, H.D. 1, entitled:
"A BILL FOR AN ACT RELATING TO AFFORDABLE HOUSING,"
begs leave to report as follows:
The purpose of this measure is to temporarily exempt Hawaii Housing Finance and Development Corporation affordable housing projects from certain state and county fees and exactions when the units of the housing project are exclusively made available to certain qualified residents.
Your Committee finds that this measure would reduce development costs and encourage the production of more affordable housing units for Hawaii residents.
Your Committee has amended this measure by making technical, nonsubstantive amendments for the purposes of clarity, consistency, and style.
As affirmed by the record of votes of the members of your Committee on Judiciary & Hawaiian Affairs that is attached to this report, your Committee is in accord with the intent and purpose of S.B. No. 763, S.D. 2, H.D. 1, as amended herein, and recommends that it be referred to your Committee on Finance in the form attached hereto as S.B. No. 763, S.D. 2, H.D. 2.
Respectfully submitted on behalf of the members of the Committee on Judiciary & Hawaiian Affairs,
DAVID A. TARNAS, Chair
